Nuad boran is a form of body+energy work that incorporates acupressure, joint mobilization, and gentle stretching to temporarily ease tension and stagnant energy. Together, these actions result in a meditative flow between giver and receiver - which will leave you feeling more balanced, nourished and refreshed. This practice can be particularly helpful for headaches, digestive issues, stress & anxiety, and previous soft tissue injuries. Thai Yoga Therapy, practiced on a mat and in comfortable clothing, is often (jokingly) described as having someone do yoga for you.
During these sessions we will discuss your specific condition, goals, and whether you're looking for help for the long term and what that might look like. Sessions take place on a mat on the floor for the combination of gentle stretching, joint mobilization, rocking, and application of pressure via palms, thumbs, elbows, knees, and feet along the body's energy meridians.
From a neuroscience perspective, my goal is to create the conditions to help you down regulate your nervous system. When your system feels 'safe', your body is in a better place to self-organize and heal.
Please wear loose comfortable clothing that allows more range of motion - similar to what you would wear to a yoga class. A 90-120 minute session is recommended to receive the full attention needed for the entire body, with a minimum of 60 minutes.
